In the sixth book in the ever-amazing Kate Daniels series, the setting shifts from the post-apocalyptic Atlanta we've become accustomed to. Instead, Kate and Curran are transported to a European setting, complete with a castle. They make the trip overseas to play mediators and protectors in a tense family feud situation that they'd rather not be a part of. They have no choice, though; the European shape shifters have offered them a supply of medicine that can cure shapeshifters that are going loup. All Curran has to do is protect Desandra, the daughter of a despotic shapeshifter leader, who happens to be pregnant. The problem is that Desandra has been married off two times, in each case to sons of rival shapeshifter clans, and she had recently had revenge sex with her ex-husband, so no one knows who the father is. Considering that these children will inherit Desandra's family territory, which is a prize worth going to war over, apparently, all three family clans are at the castle, awaiting the birth, and trying not to kill each other in the interim.

Can things get worse? Always, in a Kate Daniels book. It turns out that the owner of the castle, the one hosting these delicate diplomatic negotiations, is none other than Hugh D'Ambray: Roland's warlord, his second-in-command, and someone very interested in Kate. It's not long after they arrive that Kate realizes Hugh knows exactly who she is, and intentionally arranged the whole affair just to get her trapped in a castle with him. However, he's not planning on killing her. First, because he's trying to convince her to return to Roland and fight with them. Second, because Hugh has the hots for Kate. While this gets under Curran's skin, Kate has her own reasons to be jealous. A young, pretty, and very clingy heiress from another pack just happens to be visiting the castle, for no explained reason. She has her hooks in Curran, hoping to break up his relationship with Kate and establish herself as the Beast Lord's mate. Throw into this volatile mix some new and deadly shapeshifter creatures that are trying to kill Desandra and her unborn babies, and we have a typical day in the life of Kate Daniels.

Another book in this series, and I'm still loving every read. This latest installment has the elements that made me fall in love with Kate in the first place: a fabulous main character, a steamy romance with a partner that is her match and not her better, equally well developed side characters whether they are friends or foes, a fast-paced plot line with well-described action, solid tension and suspense, and excellent world building. While I could happily spend the whole series in the Atlanta setting, I also enjoyed the change of scenery. The reason my rating for this book is a little lower than the other novels in the main series is because I felt like the book needed more time to develop the conflict concerning Desandra and her family. The story is a little ambitious, and by combining the Hugh D'Ambry plot with the pregnancy plot, I felt the latter was short-changed. I also wanted Kate to have more opportunities to make those smug, self-righteous shapeshifter snobs realize that she was far more incredible than they initially judged. She has a few moments to rub her awesomeness in their face, but considering how poorly they treated her in the first two-thirds of the book, I wanted her to have more grand of a payback. Also, Curran's deception was a bit contrived. These flaws aside, it was still a thoroughly engrossing read from first page to last, and more enticing than many other fantasy books I've read. I can't get enough of this series, and truly wish there were more than ten books in it. ( )

(No Spoilers)

Magic Rises is book six in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. You will not be disappointed in this book or the series.

WOW! Amazing! Outstanding! Spectacular! LOVED IT!

Another great read in the Kate Daniels series. I was pulled in on another amazing adventure. We have suspense, action, romance, betrayal, and some amazing surprises that left me going OH MY GOD, WOW, and AHHH!

I loved Magic Rises and HIGHLY recommend this book and series.

If you have not read this book yet DO NOT read any reviews with spoilers. You want all the surprise that happen to be unspoiled. It is that good!

Audio Review 2017: Amazing. Loved it.
Audio 2020: OMG! I had all the feels again. It was just like the first time I opened the book. I cried, I laughed, I felt deeply for Kate, and the trails everyone went through. SO GOOD!!

A little more disjointed than usual with all the characters, but reasonably well handled - and a heck of a fun story. ( )

I love all the Kate Daniels stories, but this one always makes me mad because of what Curran does. I understand why he does it, and I even would probably do the same thing in his place, but that doesn't mean that I like it or like him while he's doing it.

Of course, there are things that are said and happen in this book which start to show up in the next books, so it all needed to happen to move the story forward.

Ilona Andrews is great at coming up with plots upon plots and layers and layers in the books. There are easter eggs that show up in early books that lead into things that happen 3 books later, and you don't notice them unless you are binge reading them and reading them all back to back. Otherwise they are just hidden, but it makes great rereading pleasure.

I'm going to be desperately sad when the last book comes out. At least we'll have some other stories in the world to hopefully look forward to. ( )
